After a cyber attack, the Dreifaltigkeits Hospital in Lippstadt and two other hospitals are temporarily unable to accept emergencies.

After the attack, no one anymore had access to the patient data. “As in other cases, our employees and other experts who are very experienced in these matters are trying to restore the IT systems as quickly as possible,” it says on the hospital’s website. “This necessary process is carried out completely normally and carefully, but requires the time necessary in other cases of cyber attacks. For such cases, there are extensive outage concepts to ensure patient care, which enable unrestricted care.”

The North Rhine-Westphalia Cybercrime Contact Point is carrying out the investigations together with security experts from the Dortmund police. In addition to the extent of the damage, the investigation also examines how the criminals were able to gain access to the hospital network's IT network.
